Louise Imogen Guiney (1861–1920) was an American poet, essayist and editor, born in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Friend of Annie Fields and Sarah Orne Jewett, she was the daughter of Gen. Patrick R. Guiney, an Irish-born American Civil War officer and lawyer, and Jeannette Margaret Doyle. Educated at a convent school in Providence, Rhode Island, from which she graduated in 1879, over the next 20 years, she worked at various jobs, including serving as a postmistress and working as a cataloger at the Boston Public Library. In 1901, Guiney moved to Oxford, to focus on her poetry and essay writing. She soon began to suffer from ill health and was no longer able to write poetry and instead concentrated on critical and biographical studies of English Catholic poets and writers. Guiney died of a stroke near Gloucestershire, at age 59, leaving much of her work unfinished. She is buried at Wolvercote Cemetery (Banbury Rd, Oxford OX2 8EE).
